Video Download: Jim Hertzog’s Reading
Allen Keller’s Great Model Railroads Volume 57
Jim Hertzog’s “Reading Line” runs thorough the Pennsylvania coal fields in the mid- 1950s. This HO railroad interchanges with the Pennsy and the Lehigh & New England and serves 12 coal mines and processing plants. Because this is mountain railroading, the grades are steep and require helpers. The Reading was carefully designed to get the maximum use out of a 30×40 foot basement. Jim has captured the gritty look of Appalachian coal mining. He will show you how to understand a colliery, make concrete roads, weather cars, make trees and use fascia lettering. 59 minutes.
